Japanese? Marked studio yunomi
Yellow brown glaze
Any ideas on what / who this is.
It’s a bit out of my experience

Certainly Japanese; I think it's Ki-Seto or Yellow Seto ware,  but you'd need a Japanese speaker to translate the mark

Thank you . I will look up these wares as I haven’t handled many Japanese studio pieces.

The Seto master potter was Sho Kato, (1927-2001), in the Mino Prefecture. This may be a late 20thC version with a kiln mark

It does look to me to be a yellow Seto glaze and the most likely places that it was made in Japan area Seto or Mino. Of course, although the glaze originated in these areas, it is used elsewhere.

The mark is a kiln (pottery) mark and so the standard ware production from a pottery, if you like. From experience no Japanese speaker, unless they have a significant interest in Japanese studio pottery, will have any idea what the mark says - they are generally stylised ancient kanji and known to only those in the know.

A ki-seto chawan is probably adequate to describe it and even if you found the kiln name it is unlikely to make any difference to its worth.

I find this site very useful, very in-depth with many marks and takes long time eyeballing at the screen and may find the potter:  https://chano-yu.com/famous-japanese-potters-and-marks/

Thanks everyone for info and advice. I’m just visiting Bristol and went to see the ceramics in the museum- wonderful British, Japanese & Chinese ceramics but like this cup, made me feel how little I know!
